The People’s Law School, a seven-week program to help the community learn about the legal system, is getting support from Wayne State University Law School, including a professor and three alumni.

Distinguished Professor of Law Robert Sedler, one of the world’s foremost authorities on constitutional law, led a Sept. 17 session on “Hot Issues in Constitutional Law,” for the venture, which is sponsored by the Michigan Association for Justice, Wayne Law and the law firm of Sinas Dramis. Issues tackled by Sedler included gay rights and the national Voting Rights Act.

The two-hour sessions are at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center. They began Sept. 10 and continue through Oct. 22.
